Uzuul: so meeting time superm1: umc meeting is right now? superm1: in ubuntu-meeting? Uzuul: as usual, point 1) elisa Uzuul: superm1: no, there ;-) superm1: oh :) okay, well ping me afterword and we can chat a bit Uzuul: 4 days left to GUADEC... ^_^ superm1: i'll be on for the next 5-6 hrs philn: we are not far from 0.3 milestone completion: https://core.fluendo.com/elisa/trac/milestone/0.3.0?by=owner philn: mainly UI issues remaining.. but it's quite usable now :) Uzuul: yeah, 85 %... well done guys ;-) philn: yep.. i'm not far from switching my home mediacenter from 0.1.7 to 0.3 ;) Uzuul: a good sign! Uzuul: when do you think the 100 % will be reached? approx. date obviously... philn: we also have a prototype of the DVD player philn: using Fluendo plugins philn: i'd say.. friday? philn: but that doesn't mean a release on friday philn: we'll release 0.3 before end of july.. if everything goes fine Uzuul: just in time for pre GUADEC polishing... philn: yep Uzuul: anything to add? philn: elisa, pigment have been uploaded to Debian, thanks to lool and Uzuul :) Uzuul: philn: addressed in point 5) ;-) philn: ha, my bad :p philn: well i guess that's it Uzuul: philn: and thanks only goes to lool btw ;-) Uzuul: so, point 2) artwork Uzuul: there is a new member (Marco) working on an Ubuntu tribal theme. Uzuul: there is now 2 more elisa theme, with hbons Tango one. Uzuul: though these won't be (at least for now) the official Uzuul: UMC theme, I'm sure elisa guys will appreciate more skins ;-) philn: Le__Kwer did a tango styled theme too.. it's on SVN already Uzuul: even if both are in early development shape... Uzuul: cool, the more choice, the better! philn: yes Kaleo: for clarity sake, Le__Kwer's tango theme is icons from the tango project that are here for test purposes Kaleo: (and it looks good!) Uzuul: well, I hope next time Le__Kwer will be there for arguing on artwork... Uzuul: so, point 3) mailing list Uzuul: thanks to Fluendo guys (philn ;-), we now have a "real" list. Uzuul: info and archives: http://lists.ubuntumediacenter.com/mailman/listinfo/umc-dev Uzuul: still no news from Jono Bacon and the Ubuntu guys :-( philn: yeps... seems to work fine so far superm1: We had a heck of a time getting a list for ubuntu-mythtv, it took us mar 23 until last week, so its a slow process :) philn: they could have warned us.. Uzuul: yep! and that's not much helping the communities to grow quickly... superm1: from what jono and sabdfl told me, launchpad will have support in ~6 months Uzuul: anyway, this will happen one day, but until that, we have something to rely on. Thanks again philn and Fluendo. superm1: for any team to easily make one Uzuul: that will be nice! Uzuul: well, point 4) MSF Uzuul: orion2012: there? philn: the design forum is in place.. but as i asked on the ml, it doesn't seem to be "semi-private".. and couldn't find the poll features ;) Uzuul: seems not yet (was/is on a job meeting) Uzuul: philn: I've just seen your post. Uzuul: I can't argue on it. orion2012 will post on the ml... philn: ok.. no problem Uzuul: I also don't know if orion2012 has done something on the UWN interview side?! philn: in anycase, the sooner everything is set, the sooner designers can stop working on their corner and submit work on the mailing list Uzuul: sure. that's still the top prio of the MSF Uzuul: we talked about an UWN interview with both umc and elisa guys philn: got no news Uzuul: we'll discuss this on the ml if you're ok? (how, when, ...) philn: ok Uzuul: so 5) packages philn: elisa in Debian \o/ Uzuul: once more, thanks to lool, elisa, pigment, coherence and pylouie have entered the Debian archive. Uzuul: either in experimental and / or unstable Uzuul: i've still to do pylirc though Uzuul: iirc, i've seen the ubuntu sync request for elisa passing by this week philn: yes Uzuul: so, things are (slowly) on the way philn: next point? Uzuul: 6) LIRC Uzuul: Matthew Bodkin, from InnovationOne, has joined us to help on the LIRC Uzuul: namespace. For the recall, this new namespace will allow elisa / umc to Uzuul: distribute only one lircrc (keymapping for elisa <-> lirc) file to Uzuul: support *all* remote controls without the need of edition / configuration... superm1: Also, i have a few words to throw in for lirc related to getting the modules into the kernel philn: great, welcome Matthew Uzuul: superm1: I'm re reading your mail. you seem to mention some mainline integration work? superm1: I didn't want to step on the toes for those who are pushing into kernel.org, but in the interim i'm going to assemble a patch superm1: for the ubuntu build superm1: similar to what i prepared previously on the bug that you commented on superm1: and until its in kernel.org, i'll be maintaining that philn: good news! superm1: so that there will be module availability Uzuul: superm1: cool, thanks. you should also step up on the lirc ml for talking a bit... superm1: Also, I packaged lirc 0.8.2 superm1: its in gutsy now superm1: so the lirc.hwdb is there superm1: /usr/share/lirc is where I opted to place it Uzuul: right choice Tartopom: heuuu Tartopom: for the new forum superm1: depending on how much additional help you will need on the lirc namespace work, I might be able to help a bit with that as well Tartopom: It's work in my house (sorry for my english ...) Uzuul: superm1: thanks a lot. this is how i see inter project collab. work (the sane competition ;-) superm1: hehe Uzuul: for info, superm1 is leading mythbuntu ^_^ philn: ahhh ;) good to know Uzuul: Tartopom: you can go on now ;-) Tartopom: ;) Tartopom: so here is the new beta forum : http://forum.ubuntumediacenter.org/test-forum/forum/ Tartopom: and it's works fine :p Tartopom: you can post a new topic or make a poll philn: ok.. can posts be restricted for some sections? superm1: Tartopom, how come you guys don't look to make a forum section on the existing ubuntuforums ? Uzuul: ah, right. the migration was from punbb to smf superm1: as long as the lead developers of a project approach them with a request, they are pretty good about making the subsections Uzuul: superm1: well, it's a legacy from the very first umc effort, and is needed for polling. superm1: ah ok. philn: superm1: yes but we need a semi-private+polling forum Uzuul: but you have a point (orion2012: any args?) Tartopom: philn: yes the design section is only available for agreed people ;) Tartopom: I don't know if you see it btw :p MacSlow: hi Uzuul Uzuul: hi MacSlow Uzuul: well, point 7) other things Uzuul: Seb Gripon just told me that he won't be able to take the lead of the Distro SF :-( philn: Tartopom: ok, cool.. i created an account on the punbb forum.. do i need to re-create it in that one? Uzuul: so somebody is needed to drive the Distro creation process Tartopom: philn: yes because all the old punBB accounts migrated to the new but it's not automatic Tartopom: philn: we don't know yet if SMF will remplaced PunBB or not.. lekastor38: when the distro process should start ? Tartopom: Uzuul: I'm most interested by the distro than the software umc but i have not the skills.. and I'm in the MSF ^^ Uzuul: superm1: have you made some doc on the distro derivation process for MC needs? that would help in bootstraping people on our side Uzuul: Tartopom: nothing stops from being in several SF ;-) superm1: Uzuul, there are several ways to go about it Tartopom: Uzuul: I have a life :p superm1: I haven't written any docs on the matter, but you should join #ubuntu-derivative lekastor38: uzuul, i saw some times ago a link on ubuntu docs, on how to derivate... superm1: when some folks are in there Tartopom: Uzuul: a little bit :p Uzuul: lekastor38: I've tracked the various ubuntu wiki docs on the umc distro wiki page. superm1: Uzuul, I can point you guys at the scripts we use lekastor38: as, i told you some times ago, uzuul, i am interested to work on distro too superm1: if you would like see the process that we are using superm1: to build disks and such philn: we should vote for that leader via the new forum+poll ;) Uzuul: the hard part is to select the right set (minimum) of software and have a build process with some people to work on... Uzuul: philn: yeah, are you applying? ;-p philn: Uzuul: i'd like to have a life too ;) superm1: Uzuul, you will probably want to talk a bit with joejaxx about how he chose software for ubuntu studio and fluxbuntu Uzuul: superm1: yep, I'm interesting in superm1: Uzuul, after the meeting i'll point you at some of it and try to explain what we do superm1: and a few points i've picked up Uzuul: philn: a what? ;-) Uzuul: superm1: thanks Uzuul: well, anything to add guys? philn: hmm all set here ;) Uzuul: the various part of the project are going well. Elisa is... more pretty than ever, and in time for its (her?) GUADEC rendez-vous ;-) Uzuul: so meeting closed. thanks to all the attendees
